Pollution Patrol. Pollution Control.
Air quality is a global problem. In 2012, seven million people died due to air pollution worldwide, with more than half of those attributable to pollution outdoors. Air pollution causes asthma, respiratory diseases, lung cancer, heart disease, and stroke, and it affects all ages. While in some parts of the world it ruins what would be beautiful views, it can also threaten lives. With proper pollution measurement using applications provided by our partners, cities can track progress reducing pollution. Sensors using RPMA networks measure oxygen, carbon dioxide, carbon monoxide, humidity, and particulates. To make progress, you have to know where you are. Then as changes are enacted, you can know where pollution reduction efforts are going. Our partners have provided the tools, and we’ve provided the connectivity they need to carry that data back. Pollution is a problem we can solve.
